This is a very good buy. Paid someone to put it up and that was quite costly. He also noted the instructions were rubbish and it took him half a day to put it up and all he does is kit sets. It looks smart, does the job and is easily managed. My only complaint so far is the Protective strip over the folded in fabric pools water then suddenly splooshes a huge amount Of water. We tried tightening the strip but that didn’t work.

Pergola is a good product. I erected it onto a wooden deck with coach bolts and has been good during long hot summer days. Was simple to set up but it is a pity that it doesn't come bigger . 5x3 would be a lot better

Great addition to garden, only down side was instructions are hopeless. Had to add stays because of Wellington winds but hasn't moved since. Also rope tie is too high for anyone under 6 foot but solved that problem.

First 12 months it was good, then the powder coat started to deteriorate along with the shade. We are no pulling it down completely as it’s flexes far more than it did initially. Two summers, not great value
Excellent sun protection

We installed this for an elderly parent and it's given her "another room". It's extended her living space by giving her a shaded area on a previously almost unused patio that used to be too sunny to sit out on for long. It's pretty simple to put up - the hardest part was drilling 12mm holes into the concrete in the beating sun - and works beautifully. The only thing we've changed is the position of the tie up for the pulley string. Not sure why it's meant to go on the top bar - you'd need to be at least 6' to tie it comfortably and she's about 5' with limited ability to reach overhead.

Very happy with the product once it was assembled and up. A bit noisy in windy conditions. Rollers rattle in tracks. Odd position for main draw cord cleat...too high to reach. Instructions were dreadful.... Inaccurate, hard to read due to tiny print and not easy to follow. Instructions need to be idiot proofed and redone.

Straightforward assembly relative to size of structure. Chinglish instructions meant referring to diagrams were the only real way to discern pieces, but got there in the end. Runners can catch when retracting blind, but no biggie. I'll add a pulley in the holes that are supposed to hold the tie-off, as that is way too high, and move that to a more suitable position on the pole. Good for 400 bucks, well see how it lasts.

Instructions are crap. Can`t even read some of the wordsand the illustations are, well , poorly drawn. All that aside , I figured it out , and had to cut the ends to fit in the space I had allocated for it. I also changed the position of the rope tie to the leg of the unit , not the horizontal rais. But its up now and works fine. We like it.

Pergola was what I was expecting

Based on both reviews and advertising product was mostly what I expected except for the standard zinc screws and zinc base plates would have thought for an outside product made of aluminum you could have at least provided galvanized screws base plates to avoid rust in the future.

Happy with pergola, straight forward assembly, although having txt with the instruction pictures, would have made it clearer. Also it would be much better design if the pulley cable was able to be tied up to the uprights rather than the top framing. Great price.
about 1 year ago2020-03-16T09:44:34+00:00
Yep, can agree with other reviews (which I checked before i purchased btw) that the instructions are indeed rubbish and they should really be re-written by Trade Tested. Took an hour longer than it should because of it. The velcro cover is never going to stay on if the wind gets up. Otherwise it's a great product, nicely finished.
Pergola with retractable canopy
about 1 year ago2020-03-09T00:26:42+00:00
Took considerably longer than the advertised delivery time. No idea if that was normal or not. It looks GREAT! I’m loving having it. However the instructions were useless. The ink faded and all blurred, making the time to put up a heck of a lot longer by having to play jigsaw puzzle with it first. As an added difficulty factor I put it up by myself, needed a glass of wine when I finished
Freestanding Pergola with Retractable Canopy 3x4m
about 1 year ago2020-03-06T07:00:41+00:00
Not wat I expected, makes a lot of noise with wind, flapping and rattling of the suspension. Collect a lot of water with rain.
about 1 year ago2020-01-20T20:38:27+00:00
Overall this works well. It took about half a day to erect. One or two issues with getting screw and bolt holes to line up. The fabric stitching on one of the rails has started to unravel after a couple of months and needs to be restitched. During rain, water sits on the fabric and can splash down unexpectedly in wind, so keep clear! Otherwise it does the job well and is easy to use.
about 1 year ago2020-01-06T04:32:22+00:00
Great value for the price . Makes a great addition to our deck. As with others screw for bolt securing canopy had no thread but easily fixed by drilling out hole and hammering in a nut. Suggest moving anchor for pulley rope to one of legs as hard to reach but we bolted it to handrail of deck instead. Yes instructions hard to read but hubbie and I have already survived erecting kitset metal shed so this was a breeze.

Fab for price, chronically bad instructions
about 1 year ago2019-11-01T04:17:34+00:00
As others have said, this, once built, is a great pergola for the cost. Once it’s bolted into the ground it is secure and steady even in high wind, though if the canopy is extended it does rattle a bit, but is just noise. The instructions were shockingly bad and frustrating as we had to undo a few bits a few times as diagram was unclear about what went where. Some screws were the wrong size so we had to buy different ones but if the instructions were better it would be an easy enough item to build. It’s a good size and gives shade when needed. I’m happy with the product and really hope some new colours of fabric become available soon for some variety!

Retractable Pergola 3m x 4m
about 1 year ago2019-06-12T22:25:31+00:00
Overall very happy with finished product encountered a few problems with the assembly, first up it only required my husband and myself acting as TA to erect, so easy there. Instructions you nearly need x ray vision to read the small and faded print, 2 of the screws provided had no threads and a couple of the bolt holes were drilled too small, so a few modifications were needed. The canopy rain protecter cover is only velcro'd on very flimsy. The Pergola more than adequately does it's job and we are happy with the product itself.

I bought two free-standing ones for my wooden deck. They fit perfectly and look great. They said it was a 'two-man job'. I am a 65 year-old- woman and put them both up by myself, after reinforcing the sub-structure of the deck. The instructions are terrible, with the illustrations two small and blurry to see. Please rectify this as a lot of other reviewers make the same complaint.

This is the first Trade Tested product that we have purchased. It arrived in a single box, including all parts and instructions. It took two half days to install with one other person helping. It took longer than expected to install because of a small error in the instructions - wrong size drill for the base anchors, but once that was sorted it went very smoothly. We are very happy with the end product - looks like a very good finish and everything fitted perfectly. A bit of noise when its windy but that's fine.

I'm really happy with this product. It has added lots of value to our outdoor area, and no one wants to bother with umbrellas! It was easy to put up in a day with 2ppl. Concrete corner bases easy to create. it seems very sturdy and we are in windy wellington. I have added some cheap velcro straps so it does not rattle around as much when the awning is extended.

I found this fairly easy to install despite the terrible instructions !It looks really good and seems good quality for the money . My only negative is the rattling that the metal runners on the side make in even a slight breeze , I have ended up cable tying each one in place to stop the noise which is okay as I don't really need to open and close it .

We looked hard for a cost effective awning that was robust, effective and affordable for a rental property. The tenants are really happy, it looks great. They said when the awning is pulled across the house is cooler. We love it's retractable and that we can purchase a replacement canvas. The uprights seem like they'll last. The tenants installed & added a brace as they thought the uprights could be more stable. The colour looks sharp.

Was keen on this from description. During putting it together I found the instructions poor with not a lot of guidance.

Very average. ..

A bit light
over 2 years ago2018-12-12T16:09:54+00:00
The pergola was easy to install and everything went together ok. However when it was up I fould it to be a bit wobbly. Because it is not braced in any way it can easily sway side to side, not helped by the small brackets under each foot, most of the weight being on the top. Possibly due to the light material? Anyway I had to solve the problem by bracing two opposite corners against the house with angle iron to give it stability.
over 2 years ago2018-12-12T15:32:29+00:00
This item does the job but a little wind and it is very noisy. The extra piece that goes over the cover when it is pulled in has insufficient Velcro so will not stay on if a bit of wind We do like the product but can see lots of improvements needed.

Product looks good however from an assembly point the instructions are terrible they are bearly readable. Instances where holes are required to secure to patio recommended sizes are wrong. In its current form we would not recommend unless you are a tradie or a knowledgeable DIY person.
over 2 years ago2018-11-01T10:36:05+00:00
Pleased with product although the handyman found that the instructions were printed too small and sparse on detail. He had to cut 100cm off poles to slide under the 2.3cm height from concrete pad to eave measurement which would have been easier with a wall mounted article but I did not wish to attach anything to the exterior walls. The shade tucks under the eaves when not in use and open structure does not darken adjourning lounge. The 3m width was taken care of by placing two concrete footings in the garden. I am pleased with the colour, looks, delivery to door and reasonable price. I look forward to a sheltered outdoor family lunch on Christmas Day no matter what the weather.
A good name as describes item well.

Received our pergola just before labour weekend so it was a good long weekend project. On first inspection the finish looked good. The powder coating has a nice finish and looked to be well done. All the pieces are letter coded and the instructions seemed straight forward although the pictures could be a bit bigger and clearer in a couple of places. The only problems we had with construction were pretty minor, not all the washers were of the correct size so could only use just over half of them and the instructions said to drill a 12mm hole in the concrete but we were provided with 14mm bolts so I had to rush back to Mitre 10 before they closed and buy a 14mm drill bit. Other than that the construction went quite smoothly. Once on place however we found another couple of issues. The rope system only pulls the middle of the shade tight. The side are free to move back and forth in the slightest of breezes and this causes the sliders on each side to create a surprising amount of noise. A piece of string at each corner improved that but does make the process of putting the shade out and back a bit more of a hassle. All in all its a reasonably sturdy pergola with a nice finish. The shade sail itself is thick enough to stop the Central Otago sun but the running system is a bit cheap and noisy. Basically you get what you pay for. With that said I would recommend this pergola to people as long as they know what to expect.

Bought two of these to shade a large table and outdoor seating in a very sunny patio. Although instructions were in 'chinglish', and had had some errors in them (typos around lengths/widths), we worked this out and managed to put them up in a few hours. Am very pleased with the final result , pergolas are practical, and help to cool everything down.

It's great but would recommend domes rather than Velcro for the top cover as it blows off in light wind
over 4 years ago2017-04-30T12:12:26+00:00
Very happy with the purchase, it doing what we intended it to do and that was to give us an area that we could relax in on our deck. The only downside would be the material that sits atop of the retractable cover, due to this only being held on by velcro we saw this addition to the design faulty. We will be looking to make additions to it by putting a screen across the back for privacy and maybe one down one side, otherwise very happy with purchase

A great solution for shade when you need it
over 4 years ago2017-02-09T19:31:27+00:00
This light-weight pergola was the perfect solution for our patio where we need shade in summer but not in winter. It is a big job to install, especially if you have to drill holes in concrete to bolt the posts down, but it all went together well. We were a bit worried about how it would cope with strong winds as the pamphlet says it's not suitable for very windy places. Since it's been up we've had some fairly windy days and there haven't been any problems. The only thing we felt could be improved on is the velcro fastening for the cover which we think is a bit inadequate, and we may put something else on to hold it down, as it does flap up and down in the wind. But otherwise we are very happy with our purchase, and the very reasonable price. Definitely recommend this product.
over 4 years ago2017-01-23T19:29:10+00:00
Its a great product. Looks great works well and good quality. My only negatives are the instructions are terrible and almost impossible to read, the other thing is it could do with more bracing in the corners to make it more stable/solid. I wouldn't want anyone to fall into it.

It was easy to assemble and install, and It looks great. It is bit of a shame that the canopy sail can not really be left in use in the rain as it after a while the sail fills with water. The velcro rain cover seems way to loose, as on rainy days the rain cover also fills with water. Otherwise I am happy.

We needed a shade solution to go around a bay window at the front of the house. The pergola went together easily with good instructions. Found that the sail flapped around a bit in high winds, but that was not unexpected. Sorted it with 3 strips of velcro to put a bit of tension on the sail, and all was good. We are thrilled with the result.
